Has anyone else had a major drop in traffic during the past few days?


Total traffic to my hubs has dropped nearly in half, or less than the traffic on one day (a week ago) to my most successful/most visited hub. What gives? Another Google change? It is so disheartening to update and tweak my hubs, watching my traffic grow each month since the last "disaster" period, only to have the bottom drop out. Not again!

    That's not happy news. Since my best hub (LESS than 50% today of its daily traffic prior to my sudden drop) is also my best moneymaker, it's already decreasing my daily earnings.

    Thanks for your response, blueheron. I do have a few seasonal hubs, but my best-performing ones (including the absolute best) are evergreen. That's why it's such a jolt to see my traffic drop about 50% after watching it thrive.

    Bill, you have a much higher volume of hubs (terrific ones) than I do. I suppose I'm counting on a few hubs on this site for traffic and revenue while having "too many irons in the fire" overall to write (or finish) more. (Pardon the cliche.)

    Thanks, nutritionhub....I should heed your counsel since I've experienced the drops before and they finally resolved. I think the sudden drop shocked me since I expected my numbers to keep climbing as they've done for a few months. Jaye
